Over the last couple of months, I have flirted with the idea of past eras of fashion, taking on elements and mixing them up with my current wardrobe. Over the last couple of outfit posts though I've let the trends get the better of me and not carefully thought out my looks.
From looking over some of my most recent Instagram posts I feel I went too far with colour. Colour does excite me and there is tones of it across the high street, which got me hook line and sinker. Looking back over what I have bought so far I felt really annoyed at myself for letting the trends take over my style. This is the style rut running riot! I talked more about this in another post here.
Taking a step back I sorted through my wardrobe and made a conscious decision to stick to fabrics and colours I know that I will wear for years and not months. Following a shopping trip over the weekend, I came back with more considerate items that are more fitting with my style. Sometimes you have to take a step back and review where you want to take your ideas and make a decision not to buy into just any old trend that comes in.
One of the first pieces that I picked up was this polka dot blouse. This is a proper bargain at £12.99! The fabric makes the blouse light and gives a nice billowing touch to the sleeves. This whole look works perfectly as both top and jeans cinch me in at the waist and a little bit of height with these boots. This look is a great transitional outfit for the in between seasons.
I would love to know how you guys are coping with this transitional period and the first look of the new trends?
